Self Test Software Practice Test


Objective: Maintain the infrastructure of the client and server.
Sub-objective: Configure settings for server products.


Single answer, multiple-choice.


You are the network administrator for your company. The company’s network runs on a single Active Directory domain. You deploy Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server (FSE) on a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. You want the FSE server to scan all e-mails that are exchanged between users in the domain.


What should you do?



  1. Configure a Realtime Scan Job and set the bias setting to Maximum Performance.
  2. Configure a Realtime Scan Job and set the bias setting to Maximum Certainty.
  3. Configure a Transport Scan Job to scan all inbound e-mails.
  4. Configure a Transport Scan Job to scan all internal e-mails.

Answer:
D. Configure a Transport Scan Job to scan all internal e-mails.


Tutorial:
You should configure a Transport Scan Job to scan all internal e-mails to achieve the objective in this scenario. FSE server uses the Transport Scan Job as the first layer of scanning and protecting the Exchange server from virus attacks. Depending upon how you have configured Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 in your organization, you can use a Transport Scan Job to run a scan at various points in the network, such as the Edge Server or Hub role. Before configuring a Transport Scan Job, you must first verify whether the Transport Scan Job state is set to Enabled. You must also check whether Virus Scanning, File Filtering and Keyword Filtering are listed as On. A Transport Scan Job can be set to scan Inbound, Outbound and Internal routed e-mails. When Inbound is selected, the FSE server scans all e-mails received from an external e-mail server. When Outbound is selected, the FSE server scans all e-mails that leave your Exchange server. When Internal is selected, the FSE server scans all e-mails routed within the domain. In other words, the FSE server will be set to scan all e-mails exchanged by users in the Active Directory domain. To configure various scan jobs in your FSE server, go to Forefront Server Security Administrator > Settings > Scan Jobs.


You should not configure a Transport Scan Job to scan all inbound e-mails to achieve the objective in this scenario. FSE server is set to scan all e-mails received from an external e-mail server when the Inbound option is selected for a Transport Scan Job.


You should not configure a Realtime Scan Job and set the bias setting to Maximum Certainty to achieve the objective in this scenario. A Realtime Scan Job enables the FSE server to scan e-mails on Exchange Server Mailbox and Public Folders. Bias settings are configured to define the number of available scan engines to be used for scanning e-mails on a FSE server. When you set the bias setting to Maximum Certainty, the FSE server uses all selected scan engines to scan the e-mails.


You should not configure a Realtime Scan Job and set the bias setting to Maximum Performance to achieve the objective in this scenario. Bias settings are configured to define the number of available scan engines to be used for scanning e-mails on a FSE server. When you set the bias setting to Maximum Performance, FSE server uses only one of the available or selected scan engines to scan the e-mails.
